FantasyPros Football Podcast: Week 5 Rapid Reaction + Who is Marquez Valdes-Scantling?

Oct 7, 2018

Marquez Valdes-Scantling may have carved out a long-term role for himself with his Week 5 performance

Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. Our Sunday show is hosted by Dan Harris (@danharris80) and Mike Tagliere (@MikeTagliereNFL). Every Sunday throughout the NFL season, we’ll be analyzing every game that started before Sunday night and sharing our fantasy takeaways with you.

We’re back to break down Sunday’s exciting slate of action and give you our thoughts on how these matchups might affect the fantasy landscape moving forward. Blake Bortles (2:00) isn’t any better than we thought and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (6:43) may have earned a larger role with his performance. Is it time to cut bait on Derrick Henry (24:20), how should James Conner (37:46) be ranked for the rest of the season, and how will Robert Woods fare if Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks (55:36) both miss time in the future?
